Gabriel Pirani, Santos

Most MLS teams, including Orlando, have done a lot of shopping around South America, but the league is just starting to break into the Brazilian market. New York City FC has had tons of success raiding several promising talents from the world's greatest footballing nation, and Orlando would be wise to do the same.

Pirani is a top prospect for Santos, one of Brazil's most historic teams, playing primarily as an attacking midfielder but capable on either flank. He's probably a bit pricey for a U22 signing, and doesn't fit the profile of Gonzalez, but is an extremely enticing option for Orlando City to track over the coming years.
